Why attend?

As we enter into market conditions that include higher than expected inflation and increasing interest rates, the RealREIT conference will focus on what potentially lies ahead for Canadian REITs and their likely path forward.

The current state of the real estate market and how the REIT asset class has performed over the past year will be examined.

Learn from thought leaders and get an insight into their predictions on the outlook for REITs in 2023 and beyond.

What you'll learn

The RealREIT conference will examine office, retail, industrial, and multi-residential market activity from the perspective of investment, development, financing, and leasing.

The agenda put together with the help of our advisory council and will cover a wide range of topical issues including:

  • How will higher interest and inflation rates impact the performance of REITs?
  • Insights into ESG and the state of play for Canadian REITs.
  • CEOs' predictions on what lies ahead for Canadian REITs and their likely path forward

Who you'll meet

Join REIT executives for thought-provoking discussions along with private and institutional investors, equity analysts, portfolio and investment managers, brokers, lenders, appraisers, lawyers, and other intermediaries.

Grow your network, collaborate, and connect with top CEOs, CFOs, and COOs at this year's event.

This is your opportunity to reconnect in person with a full range of REIT executives from across Canada and plan a course of action for the future.

Senior attendees

2020 Attendee

The conference was very well organized and presented. As someone who works in the telecom industry, having a better understanding of real estate trends in terms of investments with REITs, and knowing the short and long-term impact of Covid on various sectors: office, retail, and industrial help us greatly in recognizing how those trends impact our trends and investments and infrastructure.
